    Gear Idler Shaft Play

    I searched and could not find very much... I hear a knocking at my starter clutch at idle. .. ( my carb's are synced ) ..funny thing if I play around with the sync and unbalance the carb's the knock goes away. Changing the starter clutch did nothing for the knocking so I tore off the engine...

    Second gear fix

    New here to this forum, lot of good info here. Have an 88 that has had the second gear problem since I purchased it. Still rideable but can stand not being able to hit second hard since it will slip out. Have the engine out and about to get it on a table flipped to access the bottom end. And...

    1985 Transmission removal/diagnosis

    Problem: When more than 1/3 throttle is applied, it revs up accompanied with a ratcheting gear noise, in multiple gears. Previously posted in clutch section and realized it's not clutch after removal and re-installation. Suspect bent shift forks, shift drum damage or gear dogs worn. I'm posting...

    A better look at the Roadie gear failure

    I took the bad parts off the transmission shaft to get a better picture. Only 2 of the 3 dogs are pictured, but rest assured, the other one is NOT still in the motor. All busted off parts were accounted for. Thinking about it, and talking to a few folks led me to the conclusion that the...

    Lets make a new gear..

    I was basically given a complete trans which I will use in my project. To them it was trash because it was jumping out of 2nd as you can see by the picture of the drive dogs. Well the culprit isn't actually 2nd that causes all the grief in these bikes , it's actually 5th gear which engages...

    Finicky 2nd Gear

    Not sure if it's me or if this is some known problem, like the segment thing I read about somewhere else... I am missing 2nd gear shifts like crazy and it's getting annoying... My other bike, a CB900 also has a similar issue which I never expected to appear on the Max... The shifter is a...

    Middle Gear

    Stupid question (and I feel stupid for asking); does the oil for your middle gear come from the crankcase or is there another area where you need to fill the middle gear. The reason I ask is I have a clear cover and it is very cloudy and I can only see fluid in about the bottom quarter of the...

    Lost second gear

    Dang!!! I had over 50,000 miles on my 03, which now has over 60,000 miles still running great. I have about 8000 miles on the Verminator and its skipping in 2nd gear. The 85 engine has about 25,000 miles on it. Looks like I am going to be real good at removing the engine in a Vmax. I first...

    Ryan's gear sale

    Figured I'd post a lot of this stuff here before it goes up on fleabay to sell for pennies, but it's worth nothing sitting in my closet collecting dust. Make an offer, I'm not looking to get rich off the stuff, just would rather see it go to someone who can use it. Icon "Overlord Resistance"...

    Final Drive Gear oil

    I was going to pick up some final drive gear oil today. I have no leaks. The manual states to "add if needed". I checked it last season and the level looked fine. Went to pick up a quart today to have if needed. The manual says, DOT3 SAE 80W hypoid oil. Went to the local bike store...

    Third gear is addicting

    So I'm on my 10th tank of fuel this season so far and I have found a new road to commute to work. 52 miles of back roads, hills, mountain views, passing zones etc. My rides keep getting better and better. Just a ton of fun. Today, my trip home included a few lines of cars that I caught up...

    Setting shift segment (bike thinks 1st is 3rd gear)

    Long story short, I made a few mistakes while putting in a new clutch (with DD mod) and upgrading the shift segment. The first mistake was I forgot to push the shift rod all the way to the left before tightening the nut on the shifter. I went for a test ride, shifted to 2nd, then shifted...

    Nut of midgear/differential broke (pinion gear)

    Guys, Maybe a stupid question. But better asked then left behind in the darkness of my mind :biglaugh: I am from the Netherlands so my English may be a little off. From what I could find on the other topics, it is called my midgear/pinion gear or differential broke (see picture)...
